What is L-Glutamine?
L-Glutamine is an amino acid made by our bodies, and found circulating in the blood as well as being stored in the skeletal muscles.
Glutamine becomes conditionally essential (required intake from food or supplements) when the body’s immune system is placed under acute pressure. Dietary sources of L-Glutamine include dairy, fish, certain meats, wheat and certain vegetables. Reflex Nutrition’s L-Glutamine is a convenient way to supplement your intake of this essential amino acid.
Who is it for?
L-Glutamine has been created for athletes who regularly exercise, both men and women.
What are the benefits?

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, which contributes to the maintenance and growth of muscle mass. Glutamine is the most common amino acid found in the muscles. Glutamine levels are depleted during intense exercise, decreasing strength, endurance and lengthening recovery times.
Take 5g (approximately one level 5ml measure) and mix with 300ml of water, or fruit juice.
On training days:Take one serving half an hour prior to exercise, one immediately after exercise and one before bedtime. On non-training days: Take one serving three times daily evenly spaced throughout the day, with one serving before bedtime.

L-Glutamine is an amino acid, which are the building blocks of protein, and thus can contribute to the maintenance and growth of muscle mass. L-Glutamine further benefits the body from the associated benefits of taking amino acids.
